    This is a pretty little plant. Unfortunately, it was very susceptible to rust here in zone 8b, so I had to get rid of it. It also dwindled after a year or so in my garden, so I would characterize Little Grapette as one of those dormants that really does not do well in the warmer zones.

    A miniature of medium purple, slightly recurved, vigorous.
